what others say

Chani • Promotional Merchandise

Kate is incredibly helpful on a number of levels. She has a sound understanding of how businesses operate and doesn’t hesitate to offer honest advice which is invaluable when you are running a small business. She has extensive knowledge of marketing, social media, and website development. Her work is efficient and her pricing structure straightforward. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kate or Cotswold Business Angel – the name says it all.

Richard • Investment Coach

My relationship with Kate has been a very happy and productive one. My requirement was for someone to manage my web presence and assist with social media. I have total trust in Kate, who edits, posts and shares my blogs without any further input from me. Kate is very flexible and will take the time to research and learn the skills to deal with any new project I ask her to deal with.

Clare • Jewellery Business

Kate has been brilliant at supporting my small business. She has rebuilt my website, managed my business while I was on holiday and even attended events with me.

Holly • Dietician

I have engaged Kate several times to do work for my small business. Each time her work has been fantastic, completed ahead of schedule and to a very high standard. She made helpful suggestions and was frank and honest about some of my (unrealistic) expectations for my website. Kate also had wider discussions with me about how to market myself, a field in which she is very knowledgeable.
